2008 Nickel & Nickel Branding Iron Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley, CA, $95 (S) – Rating 94
A beautiful example of a single varietal/single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. A deep wine that holds your attention. Well-integrated tannins add depth and structure. About an hour in the decanter and this Cabernet opens to show off flavors of dark cherry, blackberry tobacco, dark berry, dark spice with hints of toasty oak vanilla.
